Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is probably headed for retirement, fans say – but he may already have a replacement


Hawkeye (or Clint Barton, played by Jeremy Renner) became one of the most reluctant Marvel superheroes, pausing for a while, then finding himself deeply again. His initial retirements were for good reason after facing major difficulties, including the fight against Ultron to begin with. During the Battle of Sokovia, Quicksilver gave his life to save Hawkeye, giving him a sense of guilt.

Getting back to family life after a crazy race like this was certainly not easy. Still, Clint has managed to face one of the biggest horrors: seeing his family turn to dust during the Thanos snapshot. Of course, there was another retreat before the shot, which brought Hawkeye back into the fight.

Now it could be done for good.

Should Hawkeye have been retired from the start?

It was really impossible for Hawkeye to stay out of the limelight of the Avengers given that he was one of the original founders and had recruited favorites like Natasha Romanoff. As he went through a period of temporary brainwashing by Loki, Hawkeye managed to get back to normal and prove how normal a family man he was.

This contrasted with the original character of the comic book who was far wilder. However, fans never worried about seeing at least one superhero living a normal life some of the time. Separating these two worlds, however, was probably a surreal experience for Clint.

He always seemed to reintegrate into his family each time he retired. This first retreat was much shorter than expected when Captain America called him to participate in The Avengers Civil war.

However, triggering led him to become a fighter without anyone recruiting him directly. Hawkeye became Ronin for five years, killing criminals on his way like a feeling of catharsis after losing his family.

Thanks to Hawkeye’s recruitment by Black Widow to join the final battle with Thanos, Clint was able to recover his family during the reverse breakup. One would think that his family is back and that things are relatively calm after the post-breakup period of 2023, Hawkeye may withdraw again.

Maybe he should never say never unless three times is a charm. On Reddit, fans think Hawkeye will likely retire, with a logical successor in place. In addition, they point out that Hawkeye is always on hand to have its own Disney + show.

It may still seem difficult to believe that he can support something like this. The series can exist as a vehicle to see Hawkeye’s transition and train someone to take his place. Although there is still debate about who it could be, comic book tradition says it will likely be Kate Bishop, a master sniper. As one Reddit user put it, “All of these characters have so much potential, but Hawkeye is definitely retiring as his TV show progresses. It could happen halfway or at the end of the series, but Kate Bishop will be the new Hawkeye. ”

The most interesting is that there is a convincing twist between Hawkeye and Kate in the comics.

Will Hawkeye die and then be resurrected by Scarlet Witch?

Those who know their Marvel Comics will know that Hawkeye dies after passing the bow and arrow at Kate Bishop. Hawkeye was later revived by Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), leading him to join Kate Bishop to work in unison under the name Hawkeye.

Making it happen in the series would be an interesting turning point, including giving a woman another path after inheriting the role of a previously male superhero.

Well, unless the MCU version of Hawkeye prefers to be back on his farm with his family. After seeing how comfortable he was in his past retirements, it seems more unlikely that he would ever want to share his superhero title with anyone else.
